Dolores O'Riordan, the lead singer of the Irish band The Cranberries, has died suddenly at age 46.
O'Riordan defined the sound of The Cranberries — with hit songs like "Linger," "Salvation" and "Zombie." She brought a particularly Irish inflection to pop charts around the world, particularly in the 1990s.
Her publicist confirmed that O'Riordan died suddenly Monday in London, where she had been recording.
